Well for my adapter ring, I was able to print threads so that a filter will screw right into the ring. The fit is a little tight, so I mights adjust the tolerances to something like 0.05mm more, which has already been adjusted to a whole 0.25mm, so that would end up being 0.3mm, which I figured I would have to make some adjustments with extruded ABS. From what I’ve researched, ABS can require anything from 0.1mm to 0.5mm in tolerance adjustments, depending on the printer / filament. Man I can’t wait to get some black and maybe some red ABS.
I would like to start messing around with acetone smoothing for ABS, which I believe can help to reduce the need for for larger tolerances. Does anyone here have any experience with acetone smoothing? The vapor smoothing looks pretty involved and dangerous. I’ve seen that you can dip parts in acetone for a few seconds and then let them air dry. I was considering trying to find a bottle that I can spray parts with, which might yield good results, the problem is in finding a sprayer that wouldn’t be damaged by the acetone itself.
BTW I definitely think a gallery would be would be great. What would also be great is a WIP section for 3D printing, to maybe see the progress on complicated or even basic projects.
